Who'd pay £19 for this?

Jamie Oliver thought he could get away with over charging for Pasta and failed. It's pasta regardless how you cook it.
i think the jamie oliver failure in part was trying to bring trendy chef cuisine to the masses, they over streched his empire...

people will pay over priced for exclusivity but they wont if its easily available and possibly no better than elsewhere..

those jamies resteraunts were just a chain that used his reputation but ended up almost destroying it...

my son worked in one and while they tried to associate it with him they failed miserably in quality...

To be honest if you go to a posh place owned by a famous chef it's gonna be a small portion and cost a fortune.

The only reason folk go is so they can stick pictures on FB or Instagram and get 'likes'. 'oh look at me buying a breakfast at a famous chefs gaff'

Feck off..... I'd rather go to a greasy spoon👍

Average food served at above average prices and the competition were better.
Classic failure

Everyone in this thread knows far well that they could produce a much better full English breakfast for the same amount of money or cheaper.

In a posh hotel the price Gordon has set works but take that to any high street cafe/greasy spoon and no way would you sell it.

Yeh there probably are £19 variants in the standard cafe/greasy spoon but I imagine the plate would like the below
